Judge meets in chambers with teen Pa. slaying suspect



Published: Fri, January 4, 2013 @ 11:23 a.m.

FRANKLIN, Pa. (AP) — A judge met privately for 90 minutes with a 13-year-old northwestern Pennsylvania boy charged with murdering his grandparents, as part of a follow-up on whether to move the case to juvenile court.

Marie Veon, the Venango County district attorney, tells The Derrick of Oil City that “actions were taken and we’re moving forward” after Thursday’s in-chambers status conference, but wouldn’t say if that means Zachary Proper, of Oil City, will be tried as an adult or not.

Zachary remains incarcerated on charges he fatally shot his grandparents, 69-year-old George Fross and 67-year-old Dorothy Fross at their Sandycreek Township home on Oct. 7.

The teen faces up to life in prison if convicted as an adult, but his attorney wants the case moved to juvenile court where incarceration or supervision would end when he turns 21.
